MANILA - Cabinet Secretaries Florencio Abad, Rene Almendras, and Rogelio Singson serenaded US President Barack Obama during the state dinner on Monday night.

In a video posted by Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima on his Facebook page, the three can be heard singing Obama’s favorite song, Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.”


Based on a story from the Philippine Star, Obama supposedly sang along from his seat. He also stood up and applauded the three after their performance.

President Aquino also supposedly told his men to “stop while we’re ahead.”

The video has garnered comments ranging from “They have a great second career ahead of them! An epic performance” to “Imelda's parties come to mind.”

Several of Aquino’s Cabinet men also earlier posted “selfies” during Obama’s visit in Malacanang.
